Domein Oogenlust is not a traditional park where you will find pruned rhododendrons, carefully trimmed box bushes and pristinely mowed lawns. At Domein Oogenlust we like to stimulate natural processes the way they were before the intensification land use. We help nature to create a biodiverse ecosystem with space for wild animals as well as plants.

We believe that we have to take care of this planet and that is why we like the idea of VCA. We hope that registering Domein Oogenlust with VCA shows that we are serious about our statements and that we can show people that there is a way to make land beautiful and biodiverse at the same time. This Conservation Management Plan (CMP) contains all information required for officially registering  Domein Oogenlust as a Verified Conservation Area.   [Published: 2017]

Parties see added value in registering the area as a VCA as in that way their efforts for biodiversity conservation will become transparent, credible and perhaps attract outside funding that will enable enlarging the corridor. [Published: 2016]

I would like to emphasise the importance of the heathland corridor in Soestduinen, initiated by Vitens and partners. This will strengthen the stronghold of heathland species within this region, including some endangered butterflies like the Silver Spotted Skipper. That's why I am looking forward to see the results of this initiative and brand this with VCA. [Published: 2016]

The purposed VCA is the Kesatuan Pemangkuan Hutan Lindung (Protected Forest Management Unit - KPHL) Model Kapuas. This area located in Block E and Block A of the Ex-Mega Rice Project (EMRP) area. About 75.000 ha of this peat land is found in the north of the site (part of Block E of the EMRP) and contains mostly intact but logged-over forest that is a prime habitat for almost 3,000 Orangutan. Orangutan is listed as endangered species under CITES. In the southern part of the dome, approximately 30.000 ha (part of Block A of the EMRP), where much of the forest had been cleared and degraded due to the establishment of EMRP that converted forest to paddy rice field.
